Reuben Roll Ups
IntroductionI LOVE Reubens, and I found a way to both make them diet-friendly and convenient for quick snacks. This "recipe" makes one roll-up, but I find it easy to make a bunch at one time and freeze them for later enjoyment. I LOVE Reubens, and I found a way to both make them diet-friendly and convenient for quick snacks.

1 low carb tortilla (I use La Tortilla Factory Low Carb, the smaller ones, I think they're about 7")
Deli pastrami (I use Boar's Head deli meats because it's easy for me to find their nutrition info)
Deli Corned Beef
Yellow Mustard (to taste, I don't measure it...you can use 1000 Island if you want authentic Reuben taste, but since I don't like it, I prefer plain mustard)
Thin sliced Swiss cheese
Sauerkraut (I think I manage to fit somewhere between 1/8 and 1/4 cup per roll up)
I make a bunch of these at a time. I have found a little assembly line goes quickly. First I cut Swiss cheese slices into 4ths (I use half a slice per roll up). I then either tear or slice my deli meats into about 1/2" strips. I also pour my sauerkraut into a colander in the sink and press it to squeeze as much juice out as possible. I lay tortillas along the counter and put mustard, half-ounce of each meat, about 1/4c of sauerkraut, and then my cheese as I fold them. I just stack them on a plate until I have used all my ingredients and then start cooking them on my panini press. After they're cooked, I lay them on cookie racks and freeze them until solid. Then I toss them in Ziplocs and keep in the freezer for quick snacks or meals.
Reheat for 25-45 seconds in microwave (flip half-way through), or on the panini press, oven, skillet, etc.
(I do not actually have a panini press, I have a 4-in-1 griddle/press/sandwich maker that works wonderfully for this and other recipes)
